for president obama's speech later this week at the university of miami. in 2008, senator obama beat senator john mccain by 2 to 1 in the margin in the youth vote in this country. it's crucial for the president to get similar numbers this time around if he's going to win the state of florida. of course, to vote they must be registered and voter registration drives have been underway for months. according to statistics from the zx 2.8 million people are registered as independents or with a third party. the numbers are interesting, but it means nothing if there's no emotional component that will motivate them to do it. this is why the debates are so important in today's information culture. there must be a real emotional appeal by president obama if he's to succeed in getting these voters out to the polls. the best registration drive imaginable will not do a thing if there isn't this gut feeling that these young folks must get out and vote because they can make a difference. let's turn to annette taddeo, member of the democratic party and one of the leaders in this portion of florida. the yout

if obama shuts down the government in january, the democrats lose ten senate seats, ten of which are vulnerable in 20 # 14. a democratic senate and republican house encysts that obama extends the tax cuts. gerri: i'm not sure everybody is so sanguine. mitt romney's been called a liar for the ideas on taxation and taxes. he wants to cut taxes 20% across the board for everybody, the poor, the wealthy, the people in between. can you do that and get rid of breaks in the tax code for wealthy people and come out with anything like a balanced budget? >> well, two things. yes, you can bring in the same amount of revenue with tax reform, but, remember, republicans believe if you do marginal tax rates, you actually get more growth. when reagan cut tax rates, he added 10 million more people not work rolls than obama's spend more approach. put 10 million people to work, take in reagan's approach to the recession would have jobs, that's a lot of revenue coming to the government and growth as a result. yes, romney's proposal, cut marginal tax rates and reign in spending is what reagan did and

, when you look back at 2008, the debate between senator mccain and then senator obama, senator obama was cutting and slashing in his presentation there, he said some very strong, if not offensive things, to senator mccain. but he also said it with his back to senator mccain. and that was interesting tactic. a direct on offensive, talking to the people asking him the question and saying the god awful things he believed to be true about senator mccain's policies. >> because of that debate, there were critics that said that senator mccain never glanced at senator obama. >> and referred to him as that one, and there was mainstream pressure on that one. we're use today oprah and phil donahue and on the fox news channel and it's the sine quanon, and so policy is important. >> in the future, it's important. but do i have the ability to be friends with the person that's asking the question even though i don't agree with them. >> and you're going to be at the debate. what are you looking for. >> i'm going to be look for the ability to connect with the audience and senator now president obama

white women here in the state of ohio. back in 2008, remember, senator obama won ohio then, he only got 47% of the white women vote. these are middle class women, a lot of them are working women, some of them have been laid off the last four years, some of them have had their husbands laid off the last four years. the 47% remark, i had a woman come up to me in michigan and talk about this, i met several in ohio today, it offended them. some have had to ask for food stamps or other government assistance over the past several years. it offended them and makes them think romney doesn't understand their every day struggles of getting the kids off to school, paying the bills. that is still a warning sign here. he's making progress but if i had to put one thing on a bill board and say to win the election, romney better learn to deal with this, it would be that. the blowback from the 47%, especially among middle class women. >> gloria, you say polls are showing suburban women are keyed to a romney win at this point. >> those aren't mutually exclusive. when you look at the poll, for example, on
